Work underway on 2 Venango roadways

From staff reports

Resurfacing work began Monday on portions of two roadways in Venango County.

A PennDOT press release says the projects are on a portion of Innis Street and Innis Street Extension from the intersection with Route 257 in Cranberry Township to the intersection with West First Street in Oil City, and a one-mile portion of Route 8 in Irwin Township and Barkeyville Borough near the Venango/Butler county line.

PennDOT said work will include milling and overlay, drainage, as well as updated ADA curb ramps, guiderails, and pavement markings, according to PennDOT, which does not anticipate any detours with these projects, though motorists may encounter traffic controlled by flaggers.

The work is scheduled for completion by Sept. 13, weather permitting.

The contractor is Sharon Paving and Construction Co. of Sharpsville. The contract cost is $1,309,000, which is to be paid entirely with state funds.

The projects are made possible by Act 89, Pennsylvania’s transportation funding plan.
